There is nothing quite like a Caramel Apple Thumbprint Scone
I bought two tonight, one for the road and one for home.
Sometimes I buy one for me and one for Mum,
Didn’t bother to tell her I ate them both…every… last… crumb.

Tonight on my way home I decide to buy a baker’s dozen
The trouble with that is I ate six and got an upset stomach
Now here I sit upon this throne, tootin’ and thinking all alone
That there’s nothing like a Caramel Apple Thumbprint Scone….hic!

Latte and scone please
Henry said

with jam and cream?
the barista said

no jam or cream
Henry said
just plain

the barista said
I like scones
but I love them
with cream and jam
she looked at Henry
plenty of cream

he smiled
yes cream has it's place
I guess
he said

she poured his latte
and placed a scone on a plate
and took his money
and gave him change

yes sometimes cream
makes it special
she said smiling

he carried his tray
to his table
and sat and stirred his latte
and spooned off
the top cream
and eyed her
as she served
the following customer

she was an Italian
(the barista)
who spoke good English
and had the darkest of eyes
and black curly hair

the scone was good
and he enjoyed each mouthful
without jam or cream
and he captured in mind
the barista
for his night-long dream.
HENRY AND HIS LATTE AND SCONE AND THE BARISTA AND CREAM.
